Mayweed is an annual glandular plant, with upright, branching stems each topped by a single large flower head. The plant has a harsh taste and an acrid smell. Its height ranges from 28-56 cm. The leaves of the plant grow straight from the stem and sometimes have very fine soft hairs on the upper surface, though the plant is mostly hairless.
The flowers must not be gathered when wet, or they will blacken during drying.
